we'll make time

I never cried so much.
You've been taking me apart.
You gonna put me back together?
You gonna start me from the start?

I've been wrecking my blood thin.
Been wrecking my brains.
Been killing my heart.
I've been living with the pain.

So when we fight sometimes.
When we're clawing at each other.
Got to think it's all for something at the end of all the trouble.
Got to build something to last.
Not to let it crumble fast.
Want to be the ones left standing.
When all the time has passed.

And if I'm feeling unplugged.
Feeling swept under the rug.
Need to hold the lantern for me.
Need to pick me back up.

Want to remember all the things that we said we want to do.
Don't want to start to pull away.
Cause it's easier to do.
When you look at something ugly that you thought you hid away.
When it's coming back to haunt you on an unsuspecting day.
We're going to be the harbor where we can just tie our little boats.
A place to fight off all the lions that keep gnashing at our throats.

Everybody that we trust says it's harder than it looks.
Something good's a constant struggle when there's a tree there to be shook.
Better believe the wind will blow.
It'll try to push you down.
It'll try to pull your roots.
And leave you crying on the ground...

We'll make time even though there ain't much of time.
And we'll make love in the middle of the night...

I hope we're older someday.
And we've grown so much.
I hope that we still feel the warmth there.
In our kiss and in our touch.
Cause the world is against you.
When you're after something true.
It ain't the fashion to be faithful.
Even though it's hard to do.

And it's confusing sometimes.
Even the good ones fall away.
You have to keep the fire burning every night and every day.
I know it's pretty old fashioned.
Is forever really true?
But when I say that you're for me.
And baby, baby I'm for you.

And though the grass is always greener but you still have to cut it.
And the scars you get together.
Are the scars you really covet.
And at night when we are lovers.
And we're mucking up the covers.
And it's all about our eyes.
And we've forgotten all the others.
When we're laying there in silence.
In the comfort and the quiet.
And you hold me as we fall asleep.
In the corners of the night.
And though we say it on the phone.
Out in public or alone.
And then we write it down in letters.
When the other one's not home...

ps- try singing the last paragraph all in one breath, like hawksley does. i can.

search me

oh Lord, you have searched me
and you know me.

you know when i sit and when i rise.
you perceive my thoughts from afar.

before a word is on my tongue,
you know it completely oh Lord.

where can i go from your Spirit?
where can i flee from your presence?

if i go up to the heavens, you are there;
if i make my bed in the depths,
you are there.

if i rise on the wings of the dawn,
if i settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

for you created my inmost being.
you knit me together in my mother's womb.

i praise you because i am fearfully
and wonderfully made.

your works are wonderful.
i know that full well.

-excerpts from psalm 139.

anna and boy

when i stumbled upon this designer's
swimsuit collection,
i thought finally!

a collection that captures the fun-ness
of wearing swimwear.
it's all about eclecticism,
bohemian vibes,
70's prints.

instead of it being about
sexy-ness, it's about wild-ness.
expressing the 80's
rocker chick in you.

ph: anna and boy summer 2010

my faves? pic #5, 6, 7, 9.
i'm gonna have a super rad time
scoping out all these designers in australia.

there's just so much to see,
my brain is working overtime!

(tash you would go gaga over this collection too.)
